Agriculture contributes 24% to our gross Domestic Production. About 70% of the population is engaged in agriculture directly and indirectly. Agriculture employs a major portion of labour force. About 48% of the labour force is engaged in agriculture and only 12% in the manufacturing sector of the economy.

Agriculture is the major source of foreign exchange earnings. About 64% of exports are based on agriculture raw material. Agriculture is a source of food for the increasing population of our country. About 16 million tons wheat, 4 million tons rice is produced in country. Agriculture is a source of revenues for the federal and provincial government. Local bodies also get revenue from the agriculture sector.

Agriculture provides raw material for a number of industrial units. These units employ thousands of workers. Local supply of raw material keeps these units in operation. Imported raw material is very expensive. Agriculture development has resulted in more output and higher income for progressive farmers.

Agriculture plays a very important role in the agriculture of Pakistan. By exporting our cash crops like wheat and cotton we can earn foreign exchange. There are many agro based industries whose raw materials come from these crops hence crate employment and further manufacture the raw materials to make value added goods which have more value. Illiterate population could also be employed in this sector and we don't need labor from other countries at high salaries

I've never been there, but I feel that goats should be perfect to the terrain!

There is a fairly new grass it is called "African Star Grass" and I believe it might grow there! You'll have to try!

If it will you can hay it 3 or 4 times a year and it will open the door to other animals too beef and dairy.

And once it has took hold, you can get by with a lot less acres for it is the fastest growing grass around!

There are a few different hybrids for different climates.

I would look into it if it works you'll make lots of money!

Think 3 to 4 times as many animals, plus hay for sell in the bad winters you guys have!
